Genesis Scottish Open

The Renaissance Club



Overview

For years, Rutland Country Club has been known throughout the state for its greens. Small, quick and true, they defend the course against its modest yardage of 6,185. Originally a nine-hole design set on farmland, it was converted into an 18-hole course in 1927 by Stiles and Van Kleek. RCC catches you by surprise. Just as you’ve settled into a sense of security after the short par-5 fourth, you realize that security was false. No. 5 is a 223-yard par 3, all carry, with a sloping green that will cause headaches if you’re unfortunate enough to be above the hole. After you make the turn, you start climbing. The back nine is built into the hillside, demanding well-placed tee balls and confident approaches into several elevated greens, all while delivering striking mountain views. No. 14 boasts unobstructed, panoramic views of the mountains in the distance. During foliage season, it’s a special spot to be.
